      Comments about 36V Cordless Lithium-Ion High-Performance String Trimmer with Power Command:

      I bought a rehab. unit. Easy to put together and use. It seemed to be a little short on power usage, but this was my first time triming with the unit. Other then that well built and charges pretty fast. It's a lot easier to use then my heavy gas trimmer. Time will tell how well this trimmer does. Keeping my gas trimmer around just in case.

        I have a small yard, but it is a corner lot. So I have a lot of edging and trimming. I am able to complete this without having to recharge the battery. Very pleased with the performance of this trimmer. It takes about 30 min. to complete. Setting #1 has plenty of power to get the job done. Great product at a reasonable price.

        we just use this at home, small yard. it's got more power than we'll ever need. used to have a Worx and this B & D just blows that thing away. Only complaint is that it's real difficult to do straight edge because there's no swivel on the unit.

          Love the new black & decker trimmer. Keep the power level down as to have the trimmer last longer. It stays charged great for my yard so far. Only used it a few times now.

                Q:

                I purchased this item one year ago. It came with two batteries. One of the batteries will not take a charge. The other works fine. My local Home Depot does not carry the 36volt lithium battery anymore. What should I do?

              New Vs. Reconditioned

              Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.

              • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
              • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
              • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee;
                New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
